In this book you will find the first three sets of instructions for the Tantrik group AMOOKOS (the Arcane and Magickal Order of the Knights of Shambhala). For the first time, we reveal publicly the methods, rites and philosophy pursued by an inner group of initiates within the Order. This book shows how the esoteric strands of east and west are fused together into a practical system which has as its purpose the unveiling of the spiritual potential latent in every individual. We take as starting point the assumption that within each and every human is a divine spark or spirit. These exercises are a means by which this spirit may be released from the bonds of ignorance and can shine free. Cover ritual photograph by Michael R. Goss

His Holiness Shri Gurudeva Mahendranath (Dadaji) was born in London in April 1911. From his early youth he had a deep interest in the occult and spiritual patterns of the world. In his early twenties he chanced to meet the infamous Aleister Crowley, Whose hyperbole stirred and outraged Fleet Street in the twenties and thirties. Crowley's advice to the young seeker was simple - go to the East to learn more of the occult and wisdom patterns which had flourished there from pre-Christian times. However, the Spanish Civil War - in which Dadaji fought against the Fascists as a member of the International Brigade - and the second world War intervened. It was 1949 before Dadaji left the shores of Britain to arrive, penniless, in Bombay. There he was introduced by a mutual acquaintance to a sadhu of the Adinath cult. The Naths were at one time very numerous and influential in India; there are nine subsects, one of which is the Adinath cult. 'Nath', is Sanskrit for 'Lord' and is an epithet of Shiva, the Lord of Yoga. Initiates have names ending in 'nath'. One of the Nath initiates - Goraknath - devised or reintroduced Hatha Yoga in the 1lth Century. The Nath cult was also responsible for
such works as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Shiva and Goraksha Samhitas.
The sadhu introduced to Dadaji was the last remaining Adinath Yogi in all India, and was also the Adiguru or holder of the sacred line of tradition. Unlike some of the other sects of Naths the Adinath's chief interest was the Yoga of liberation from the restraining conditions of life, and to become free from the Wheel of Samsara or death and rebirth. Dadaji was initiated as a sannyasi by Adiguru Lokanatha, so becoming the first Englishman to become a sadhu. A sadhu may make only three demands: for shelter - the shade of a tree; for clothing - rags. For food - leftover scraps. These conditions in former times helped the seeker after wisdom to realise the transitory and ultimately worthless nature of attachment. In this the sadhus emulate the Guru figure of all India, Lord Dattatreya. Datta is the legendary founder and guardian spirit of many if not most of the Nath subsects. He represents a human being who has swung free of the three gunas or threads of Hindu philosophy from which the whole fabric of the Cosmos is said to be sewn. For this reason he is often pictured as a naked man with three heads and six arms to represent the Hindu Trinity of gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
For the next thirty years Dadaji wandered South East Asia as a penniless sannyasi. His travels took him to Bhutan, where he was initiated into the Kargyupta Sect of Tibetan Lamaism. He also travelled to Malaysia where he became a Taoist priest and studied the I Ching, and to Ceylon, where he was for a time a 'Bhikku of Theravada Buddhism. It may perhaps seem strange that a sannyasi of a Hindu tradition could also become a lama, a bhikku and a priest, but as many of the Eastern traditions recognize only sincerity in an aspirant for wisdom and knowledge there is no essential contradiction in a person having more than one guru or guide or seeking wherever an individual quest may lead. During Dadaji's Indian wanderings, he met and was initiated by the last surviving Guru of the Uttara Kaulas of Northern Tantriks. He also became an initiate of the Naked Sahajiya cult of Benares.
AMOOKOS - The Arcane and Magickal Order of the Knights of Shambhala
In this book you will find the first three sets of instructions for the group AMOOKOS (the Arcane and Magickal Order of the Knights of Shambhala). For the first time, we publicly reveal the methods, rites and philosophy pursued by an inner group of initiates within the Natha Community. This book shows how the esoteric strands of east and west arefused together into a practical system which had as its purpose the unveiling of the spiritual potential latent in every individual. Initiates of AMOOKOS take as their starting point the assumption that within each and every human is a divine spark, the Alpha Ovule, or spirit, which simply had to be freed from the bonds or fetters of ignorance or conditioning to shine free. As a presentation of practical methods for working towards selfknowledge, wisdom, and understanding, many may find the exercises in the different grade papers indispensable. Much of the material will not be found in any other tradition or teaching. Its rendering of the basics and essentials of tantrik practice in simple language is also new. AMOOKOS was started at the behest of HH Shri Gurudeva Mahendranath. Wishing to transmit his own experience and the Nath transmission, in 1978 Mahendranath passed the parampara or line of transmission to a youthful 'seeker after truth'. At this point, the Adinath Sampradaya was transformed into an international group (See Charter below). Soon after, instructions were received to start a nine-grade group within the Naths, and AMOOKOS was the result. Dadaji collaborated with the compilers of this material at every step, and approved their contents:
'the morning post arrived and another shake up w i t h the grade raw material. Astounding - will take some days to get through it step by step.'14 March 1983. 'I have been wandering again through AMOOKOS grade 1 and 2 material. It is stupendous, nectar of the wise. You have certainly produced a miracle explosion in the occult world.' 24 March 1983. "The grade 3 papers are hyper-dimensional and this alone is a masterpiece of collated wisdom and expression.' 16 November 1983.

Many will wish to know the reason why these instructions are now being made more generally available. To finalize this decision of a greater and more expansive Order.

The international Nath Community wishes to make available its methods and philosophy to all. who may occupy a normal life and pursuit of livelihood. members of the Natha Community feel that all should be able to take advantage of the exercises and wisdom contained in these papers.

Meditate on this point: Can Association of Thought exist without words? A very well known phenomenon in hypnotism is the 'post hypnotic suggestion'. Parahamsa is the name given to one who has attained to that. which is Hamsa. Four of his faces are in the cardinal points and there is an upper face from which proceeded the Hamsa and all-pervading mantra. The hypnotic subject is of a conditioned nature.
